Phuket : Retirement Extension

Recommended Posts

I'm Heading to Phuket Immigration this week, any new/special/curveball type tips from anyone enjoying the experience in the past few months ?

 

One Point re the 800K thb, So I need :

  1. Letter from Bank
  2. Bank Statement for 2 months (I'll make it 3 to be sure)
  3. And I need to copy past 2-3 Months Bank Book Pages also ?

 

No big deal I'll prepare all of the above anyways I guess ...

 

Cheers,

Cliffy.

 

Ps Yup I've check Phuket Immigration Volunteers website.

Ps This from a 2 year old Phuket thread : 

 

Copy updated Thai bank book name page and last 2/3 months transactions showing at least THB 800.000.
Signed and stamped bank letter AND Signed and stamped bank statement showing the money for the required period.
( 2 months first time, 3 months for consecutive extensions and both letters and updated bankbook maximum 7 days old )

The best for you would be to get some written confirmation about the recent requirements by your immigration office.

Trat immigration requires:

1. original Passbook (submission date)

2. copy of all Passbook pages (submission date)

3. Letter from the bank/Certificate of deposit (submission date)

4. Statement by the bank showing the last 3 month (submission date)

 

Trat immigration also wants the TM47 together with TM7.

All immigration offices require different documents and are totally unpredictable.

 

Regards

CW requires activity in bankbook on day of application. Most folk deposit 100baht. Not sure if Phuket also require this.

Do Phuket require a TM30?

Again CW does.

Thanks, just trying to avoid extra days trips to the Immigration Office etc ...

ALthough I did read somewhere the Bank docs, not specifically Phuket, Bank docs could be 7 days old,. I do intend get docs on the Monday, going on the Tuesday, or possible Monday afternoon !

In Trad they started refusing bank statements from the previous day just recently. Phuket could be different, but why risking an additional trip?

Have just been asked by a friend, whose retirement extension is due shortly, if Phuket immigration now require the bank letter and information to be dated on the day of the application??

 

I wasn't sure on that as I got mine the day before on my last extension and it was accepted.

 

Does anybody know if Phuket immigration now require the bank information date to be on the actual day of the application??

Not sure about Phuket, but at CW Bangkok they also want a hand drawn map of how to get to your house (they rejected a google map) and a photo of you standing in front of your house or accommodation.

Is that for every retire extension ?

Although the OP states that he has looked at the Phuket Immigration Volunteers' website, I think it worth posting here.   You should read the full text, and note the requirement of map/photos.   If you fulfil all the details of the requirements, you'll have no difficulty in obtaining an extension.

I did my retirement extension of stay at CW on 21 Aug 2019...map required but no picture. This was my tenth retirement extension of stay at CW....a picture has never been required. Now various pictures are required for a marriage extension of stay.

Renewed mine at Phuket last week, you need a hand drawn map showing location of your house plus a photo of you standing outside your property clearly showing the number of your property.

Whatever the answer may be, it is absolutely uncertain the same rule will apply to you, the day you visit Immigration.
